p><Press Release>

Seoul, Korea – November 2nd, 2017 - WEBZEN, a global developer and publisher of free-to-play games, today reminds players of the impending launch of MU Legend's OBT on November 7th, 2017.

With the open beta set to begin early next week, the latest version of the MU Legend client is already available for download on the website. Players that took part in the stress test will have a patch available when the servers open on November 7th, 2017 (UTC).

Furthermore, once the OBT starts, there will be no data wipes. This means that players can enjoy the game from day 1, secure in the knowledge that their characters will not be lost when the game reaches official release. Players who have not yet signed up or downloaded the client are still welcome to do so at: http://mulegend.webzen.com/en/

In 2001, MU Online was released to the pure happiness of hordes of fans all around the world. This marked the birth of the MU franchise globally. In 2017, 16 years later, MU Legend pays tribute to those unforgettable days, embodying much of what made its eldest ARPG brother so unique: Atmosphere, lore, game mechanics and much more. While staying true to the essence of the MU franchise, MU Legend comes with its own flavor and richness for players to discover. It's the product of a new vision that emerged from the minds of the MU Legend developers, generated with experience acquired over more than a decade.

MU Legend will open the doors into a fantastic world, long before the events of MU Online. As previously introduced, players will have four classic MU-franchise classes to choose from and embark on their epic journeys.

On the official Facebook page and Discord channel, users who had the chance to join the two closed betas and the stress test are passionately (and kindly) urging the MU Legend team to release the game.

Responding to their fans' enthusiasm, the MU Legend team at WEBZEN Dublin commented: "Our players are the most supportive fans ever! Even when we were facing the pre-production hazards experienced by almost every game, our fans expressed their unbreakable encouragement in thousands of ways! We're truly blown away by the support we've been receiving on our social media pages. Seeing the hundreds of positive emojis really puts smiles on our faces every day."

To welcome all guilds, feedback, roleplay stories and more, the MU Legend team has today re-opened the long-awaited forums. A place for all to post opinions, guides and questions, the forums are ready to host fans from all over the world.

To provide the best game experience for players, MU Legend's team of experts has released a new volley of deeply detailed game guides. The guides provided include topics such as the Rift, the guild system and the Endless Tower, each of which covers invaluable knowledge for any MU Legend pro; the "Guides" section of MU Legend's website is not to be missed.
